Making his debut in the June 2013 Willard L. Proctor Memorial Stakes, Kobe's Back didn't disappoint the hype surrounding him when he won by open lengths. The colt reappeared in early November for his graded stakes debut, finishing second to eventual 2-year-old champion Shared Belief, giving his connections enough confidence to try him in the CashCall Futurity. However, the trip proved disasterous for the colt, seeing him finish 10th.
Kobe's Back made his 2014 debut in the Grade 2 San Vicente Stakes and won the race by open lengths. He followed that up with a seventh place finish in the Rebel Stakes, a third in the Bay Shore and a fourth in the Laz Berrera.
He wouldn't get back on the board until March 2015 when finishing second in the Grade 2 San Carlos. Kobe's Back then won the Grade 3 Commonwealth Stakes at Keeneland and later that summer finished third in the Grade 1 Bing Crosby at Del Mar.
Kobe's Back was a $480,000 purchase and is owned by C R K Stable.
